Yes, this is the one....they come in many different resistance value.

Is the exact one? Because I can not find a 220ohm 25w wirewound.

the one speced here says ".01 ohm 1% DALE"

I didn't realize searching for the resistor you speced was going to be so difficult.

Hi guys,

It doesn't really matter if it is 3 or 4 resistors. In my case, I just need a resister value from 80 ohms to 100ohms to be parrallel to the LED bulbs. Therefore, I put in 3 resisters of 220ohm in parallel.

For different numbers (or type) of LEDs, you might need a different resister value. You may have to do some caluculations......or just buy a few resister of different value to test.

Hope this helps.

Nice write-up! I think i'm going to end up swapping out the license plate lights for LEDs, they look great.

There will be error for the first few seconds if the temperature is low. RikuE90 and I have been running this Luxor setup for more than 6 months now. During the winter time, the error warning will come on for a second or 2 and it will go away but it doesn't happen during the summer time
